Biggest Joys about Findagrave:
--Traveling to cemeteries and photographing grave markers;
--Personal satisfaction when my entries are researched, entered correctly, and nicely presented;
--Discovering burial and genealogy info on my own extended family;
--Helping others in their research; and
--Connecting with other Findagravers.
Biggest Headaches about Findagrave:
--Duplicate entries made those who don't take time to perform a general search;
--Maiden names entered for children, unmarried women, and even men;
--Partial entry submittals (and subsequent duplicate);
--Multiple marriage names entered in surname field (please put name at time of death and explain other married names in bio or by links);
--Names entered in lower case or mixed case.
Critical Findagrave Improvements
Findagrave - We need a Dupe Checker tool so we can check:
--our own entries for duplicates,
--own entries against general database.
A million entries are being added every few weeks. It is tedious and difficult to check our own entries for duplicates once we get past about a thousand entries. The process to upload spreadsheet entries to a cemetery screens out lots of duplicates, but isn't effective for single entries. This Contributor Tool would help weed out millions of duplicates and spare us from receiving emails from others about our dupes.
Here's another suggestion. List the most populous 2-3 cities for each U.S. state at the top of the pull-down menu. Chicago, Denver, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, and Seattle (to name a few) should be at top of the list. Most of a state's population lives (and dies) in the dominant cities so make it easier for us and minimize needless scrolling.
Thanks to all out there who:
--are helpful, enthusiastic, and courteous to other volunteers,
--send me corrections, obits, links, and other information to add to my entries,
--check their own work,
--keep up with edits, corrections, and suggestions from other contributors, and
--provide newspaper or website citations for obits so others can use this info.
I typically respond within 24 hrs to edit requests. If you request a transfer, please explain your relationship. I'll transfer to remote family members as long as I'm not a relative as well.

Hello Cori, I agree that we need a dup checker tool.
It would save a lot of headache. The dup you contacted me about was in fact checked and rechecked (before and after submission) There was no duplicate at that time, which leads me to wonder how the other person got a lower number. She has done this so many times, I am suspicious. I go to all the trouble, in some cases, to find links, cemeteries and other information and along comes somebody with lower number. It's very frustrating.
I love your list of biggest Find A Grave headaches and your recommendation for duplicates! I hope you have submitted to Find A Grave so they can consider for future system enhancements
Thank you for all your work on Find A Grave for current and future generations!!

|Luv2Hike||Joseph Arthur George Bilodeau Date of Death|
I came upon this record from the work you did here on find a grave. Great work! Joseph Arthur George Bilodeau is my great grandfather. The family has NOT known his death of death and location. I see the date you have here matches his cousin who has similar name. Are you able to advise the source of your info for his date of death?
His father, Onesime has a brother named GEORGE Anselme Theodule Bilodeauand. The family moved to Wisconsin. He has a son Arthur George Bilodeau whose birth date is Birth 26 MAR 1883 and date of death 4 MAY 1937 Chetek, Barron, Wisconsin, United States which is the same date you have for my great grandfather.
Thanks for any info you can share on the source.

could it be, that her husband is Christian Bohnet, born 1878, Juli,11. at Neufall/Bessarabia-died 1957 at Sept. 16. Los Angeles? His Parents are: Johann Georg BOHNET 1844-1936, Magdalena STRAUB 1844-1941; I`m knowing that his wife`s name is Louise, but i have no surname! With friendly regards from Germany Michael Bohnet
Congrats Cori for being here 11 years! It was nice to work with a pleasant uncranky person like you! I have read some contributor bios lately and am happy I do not have to communicate with them. This should be a HAPPY PLACE! Keep up the good work. Thanks,
Rosalie from Wenatchee, WA
|Jimmie Schuyler||Thank you|
I want to thank you for your work. Without your contribution I would have never found my Grandfathers grave site. He had died in Carson City, Nevada and I couldn't find it there after he died.
But it was only logical that he would be buried in Mammoth, AZ after living there for so many years of his life. I have sent u a request to update the information that you had posted originally. Also, I added the only photo I had of him from years ago. My family thanks you. And I am encouraged by your work to do the same in return for others that may be looking for loved one.
Thanks again and may God Bless You !!!
Corolla, thank you for your tedious work with the Crown Hill memorials! It is much appreciated by many, and there's darned near no recognition of all of the work that you're doing. Just want to say thanks!

|John C. Anderson||RE: Checking progress on this end|
Yours and others contributions to the Crown Hill Cemetery data clean-up is greatly appreciated. When others share the same goal of making the information as correct as possible, great things can happen. I know from experience that finding maiden name corrections is VERY tedious and requires many hours of studying each and every entry. I'm working on getting access to more detailed internment records from the cemetery office. I was there today and secured copies of all section maps and I'm working on getting full access to their burial records. This is a HUGH cemetery and it will take years to fill in all the gaps. Thanks again for your continued contributions.
|John Andrew Meyer||William H. Laustannau|
Thank you for addind William H. Laustannau to the Old Yuma Territorial Prison. William is his americanized name and his last name is spelled wrong.
His birth name is Wenceslao Ricardo Yslas Loustaunau. He was born April 3, 1869 in Catedral de La, Hermosillo, Asuncion, Mexico
He died 20 Aug. 1906 in the Yuma Prison, Yuma County, Yuma,Arizona.
He was known as Three-finger Jack.
His booking picture lists him as # 2029
He was a Labor Leader of the Morenci Mine.
It was a tragedy for my family that he died in prison there. He was a very intellegent man and had organized a labor strike that resulted in his arrest. An escape attemp resulted in his receiving a 5 year prison term that ultamitly resulted in his death.
He is the brother of my great great grandmother
He is the great great grandson of Juan De Batista De Anza the Spanish Explorer who was the first Territorial governer of Nuevo Spain which included everything west of the Louisiana Territory. The State of Arizona is named after De Anza's Rancho Arizona.
I added him to the cemetery and will do a complete Bio for him. Please don't remove the one you posted.
I have his booking photo as well as some other inmates from that prison including Nat Zin, Apache and Bat Dish, Apache.
